10 - 12 September 2017, 70th birthday of John Truss: homogeneous structures, permutation groups, and connections to set theory, Leeds, England

Date: 10 - 12 September 2017
Location: Leeds, England

This conference focusses on several related interests of John: first order structures which are homogeneous in the sense of Fraïssé (or of more recent generalisations), and also ω-categorical structures in model theory; automorphism groups of such structures, and connections to other fields such as permutation group theory, semigroup theory, Ramsey theory and other aspects of combinatorics, topological dynamics; connections to set theory – related questions in combinatorial set theory, and permutation group methods in set theory.

This is a BLC-supported meeting.
